Please join us for a lunch discussion on Race and Disability at Community
Change on Wednesday, April 16th from 12-1:30pm.
Location: Community Change, Inc., 14 Beacon St. Room 605, Boston, MA
As an individual who has lived life as both a fully able bodied person and
now as a nearly blind young man, *Josh Crary*, Diversity Programs Advisor
at Berklee College of Music, will be discussing the unique and complex
intersection of racism and disability in the United States. Additionally,
Josh will deconstruct the harmful and undermining myth that those who are
visually impaired or have various disabilities are free from understanding
and acting upon oppressive social constructs and cultural values. This
in-depth analysis will help shed light on how deeply ingrained and
pervasive these harmful social constructs are to all people.
Bring your lunch, and a friend! Free with a suggestion of a $5 donation.
Please RSVP to kelly at communitychangeinc.org or (617) 523-0555.
